Designed by Pierre Heyvaert during Expo 67, the artist was commissioned to create this sculpture to represent the three main themes of the Quebec Pavilion: challenge, combat, and momentum.
The shapes and volumes are multiplied by the effects of the reflections in the water, giving the illusion of movement.

Jean-Drapeau Subway Station
The Jean-Drapeau subway station is located in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. To get to the Parc easily and quickly, the subway is still the best way to go!
During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can use the river shuttle as a means of transportation, from the Vieux-Port de Montréal (Jacques-Cartier pier) and the city of Longueuil.
Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.
Two STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions.
777: Every day of the year, the 777 shuttle provides fast access to the Casino de Montréal.
